Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Crazy Fingers

I stopped collecting yearly projects after 1981 (even then I only have select shows), but I've been diving into select shows from 82 because of the return of Crazy Fingers. I've listened to most-maybe all-from the year, and while I'm yet another who is notorious for saying that an 80's or 90's version of a song rarely, if ever, touches a 70's version, I have to say, with Crazy Fingers it yet again seems to be the case. For me, anyway.

They aren't half bad, but those intros...they're almost all terrible. Way too short, and often pretty darn sloppy. Though the outro jams do often provide something to offer, they're nothing like you'll find in 1976.

I'm mainly just talking about 1982 here, but I would say that overall I think I feel the same way about any post-76 Crazy Fingers.
